Jujutsu Kaisen Merchandise – Face Masks, Socks, Mirror and Tissues from Shimamura – Product Reviews

(English follows) しまむらっていいですよね。行くたびに何らかの楽しいアニメ系コラボ企画があると期待できます。この間いろいろ買ってきたので紹介したいと思います。靴下はいつも履くサイズ(23-25cm)より小さい(19-24cm)。大人用布マスクはすごく柔らかい素材でできており市販のマスクと比べれば小さめ。携帯用ミラーは可愛らしく外出時にぴったり。ポケットティッシュはデザインが可愛く捨てるのがもったいない(笑)よかったら写真をご覧ください↓

Shimamura calls itself a ‘fashion center’; it’s one of those ubiquitous stores (1430 stores across Japan, as of February 2021) selling fast fashion – literally every clothing item under the sun – as well as affordable fabric-based homeware such as blankets, pillows and other beddings, along with mats, rugs, towels and so on. The low price range makes it very popular amongst mothers with small children. No wonder every store I’ve been to is awash with Kimetsu no Yaiba products – kids love the show so the items are probably selling well.

It was for Jujutsu Kaisen that I went shopping there a couple of weeks ago. Sometimes Shimamura collaborates with JJK and comes up with daily, practical stuff. I don’t like myself when I buy toy after toy (the act of hoarding toys basically says I’m an overgrown child xD), but at Shimamura everything is ‘useful’ so there was no guilt when buying any of the products I’m introducing below.

Ankle Socks

I was so excited to see all these cute socks that I bought every design available. Hey, I use ankle-length socks everyday, during the months when it’s warm but you still need to wear shoes as it’s not yet hot enough for sandals.

Here are the second-year Tokyo students: Maki Zen’in, Panda and Toge Inumaki. 

And here are the first-year Tokyo students: Yuji Itadori, Nobara Kugisaki and Megumi Fushiguro.

Finally, we have the older ones: Satoru Gojo and Ryomen Sukuna. There’s also a Kento Nanami pair of socks but I couldn’t get a hold of them. 

Funny thing is, it was only after I got home and put my purchases away that I realised I usually wear size 22-25cm socks, but these ones are smaller at 19-24cm. What to do with all these socks then? xD I suppose I’ll just stretch them, ahaha!

For each anime design there’s an equivalent chibi version at the same price. I didn’t get these, though, and forgot to take a pic.

  • Price – JPY 385 tax incl (about 3.5 US dollars)
  • Recommend – Yes, if they’re your size

Cloth Face Masks

I’ve seen really colorful face masks of anime characters and while they look cute hanging from a store rack, I’d never be able to wear them IRL. Thankfully, these Jujutsu Kaisen washable cloth face masks are plain black, with a small logo for each of the main characters.

Washable cloth face masks in a Shimamura store

There’s Gojo’s eye mask and intertwined fingers, Fushiguro’s Divine Dogs hand signal, Sukuna’s finger, and Itadori’s Divergent Fist. I eventually picked Gojo’s and Fushiguro’s. Next time I was there Kugisaki’s rose design appeared on the rack, but I already have enough cloth masks so I passed.

As for the mask itself, there are three per pack, made of a very soft fabric (package says it’s a sports material). I’ve used them and washed three to four times (hand wash setting in the washing machine), and so far the emblems still look good as new.

It’s the size one has to be wary of, however. For some reason they’re just a tad smaller than the usual cloth face masks that are sold everywhere. The package says it’s adult-sized, but I suppose they only mean people with small heads xD I’ve used the masks and they’re very comfy and have a snug fit, but I do wish they were sized like your run-of-the-mill ones, just for that extra room and coverage.

I’ve seen these face masks not only in Shimamura but also in specialty stores like Village Vanguard

  • Price – JPY 979 tax incl (about 9 USD) for a pack of three
  • Recommend – Yes, if you have a small head

Compact Mirror

There was no Gojo mirror available – not surprised here – but when I was at the store there were three others to choose from. Itadori’s design is orange, Kugisaki’s red, and Fushigoro’s turquoise. I feel I love all three characters equally, but my fave colour is blue or blue-green, so I picked Fushiguro’s design.

Only Gojo’s is missing from this selection of compact mirrors in a Shimamura store

It’s a USB stick-like mirror meant for (re)applying your lipstick or lipgloss. One side is a regular mirror while the other side has around a 1.5x magnification. I like the stick shape – it’s slim and easy to carry.

  • Price – JPY 759 tax incl (about 7 US dollars)
  • Recommend – Yes

Pocket Tissues

These are super cute mini-packs of facial tissues that you can flush down the toilet. Very convenient, though I won’t feel good throwing the adorable packaging into the plastics recycling bin. Wonder if I can upcycle them myself somehow? xD

Six-pack of mini facial tissues

The package says 「水に流せるティシュ」 meaning tissues you can flush down the toilet. Great for when you run out of regular toilet paper!

I wasn’t expecting them to have a full-color back part, but they do. Nice, eh?

The back parts are also in full color

I’ve seen these tissues not only in Shimamura but also in specialty stores like Party Rico.

  • Price – JPY 99 tax incl (less than 1 US dollars)
  • Recommend – Yes

For those without a Shimamura store in their neighborhood, there’s always the online store.

That’s it for our Shimamura – Part 1 post. Yes, there’ll be more xD I bought the above products in early May so I’m not sure if they’re still available; sorry for posting so late 🙁

Have a great week ahead!
